This reviewer limits the number of bright light bios because typically they reveal nothing except blaming others for the negative and taking credit for the positive. For the decadent reasons of hearing her side of the alien stories (take your pick), this reviewer decided to see how clever Anne Heche reheats three day old fast food leftovers.

Surprisingly Ms. Heche determinedly opens her inner soul to readers revealing an alleged childhood of mostly psychological, but some physical abuse. The actress insists her past led to the tabloid-published accounts of her visiting a stranger ranting that a spaceship was taking her to heaven. Ms. Heche claims her father sexually molested her giving her herpes that went untreated.

Following years of intense therapy, she now writes insightfully about her downward emotional dive bordering on the other side of lunacy. This includes the romance with Ellen DeGeneres, though that is somewhat rationalized. Still Ms. Heche turns herself inside out providing a deep poignant look filled with anger yet hope for the end product adult to overcome derogatory raising as a child. This is biography at its rawest yet strongest.
